Un buon posto

3.0 on August 08, 2017

Abbiamo soggiornato famiglia di 4 persone tra fine dicembre 2016 e primi di gennaio 2017. Atmosfera cordiale e gentilezza da parte della padrona di casa Gráinne che ci ha accolto con entusiasmo ed è stata molto disponibile a darci informazioni su come muoverci a Dublino e quali posti visitare. Colazioni abbondanti e con piatti tipici irlandesi come i vari Irish stew. Camere mediamente ampie e ben tenute. Un buon posto.

Una buena experiencia.

Estuvimos con nuestros dos hijos este mes de Julio. La casa está a unos 15 minutos andando del centro, que si hace buen tiempo es un paseo muy agradable. También hay paradas de autobús muy cercanas. En frente de la casa está el Phoenix Park, paseo muy recomendable, además se pueden alquilar bicicletas para visitar Dublín. La dueña es encantadora, nos atendió estupendamente y nos servía unos desayunos típicos irlandeses muy completos.

About the innkeepers

My parents Edmond & Eileen have retired and I run the b&b while looking after my adorable 2 year old daughter. Doesn't leave much time these days for hobbies but I am very fond of sailing and going to rugby matches. My husband works in Dublin airport and is a keen cyclist.
